Public testimony from the CT Gun Violence Prevention Working Group on 1/28/13

Here is a link to ALL 12 hours and 44 minutes of the public testimony from the CT Gun Violence Prevention Committee meeting yesterday. This should be considered dial up very unfriendly

Full disclosure: Yes I was there, Yes I testified, Yes I testified against further firearms restrictions and no I'm not going to tell you which one I am or when I spoke. I value my own privacy and for better or worse, it would be easy to find me and where I live if I gave you that information.

1. Were you a respectful pro-gun voice, or a jackass pro-gun voice?

2. Lol, that would be subjective, wouldn't it?

I don't think the jack ass pro-gun (or to be fair, anti gun for that matter) voice really recognizes he or she is a jack ass.

I will say that I thought I was polite, made informed, intelligent comments and wasn't a jack ass.

I will also say how bad so many of the people, on both sides were about public speaking.

Even some of the "professional" politicians weren't necessarily good at public speaking. The Senator or Representative from the town of Naugatuck (I think) spend 5 minutes string words together into sentences that made no sense. I THINK she was anti-gun, but she made so little sense, I couldn't be sure.

Her comments took place during the first 3 hours of the committee on Monday, so they are not in the link.
